Aren't they beautiful?
And they were HUGE beans - I've never seen green beans so big before. And since Ginny rightly thinks Nicholas needs a job.... he became our "for scale" model to show how big the beans were....

...can you believe it? Remember Nicholas is huge - he's our 17 pounder (Maine Coon x raccoon) and we believe to be a direct descendant of Dragon, son of Thor HammerPaw. Dragon's fell deeds were so terrible that his very name was whispered like a curse. For his part, earlier this week we saw how Nicholas stretches across the counter top. So that's one big bean on one big cat.
We ended up buying a bushel of beans from an Amish neighbor - the whole bushel for $18! We thought that was a pretty good deal. We ended the day with 14 quarts of canned beans, 5 frozen quart-sized bags o' beans, and a big green bean supper (with ham in the crock pot). What a bean-o-rific day!
Today we are all tomatoes all the time.. I'm headed out to scoop up as many maters as I can find.
Happy Thursday everyone! Whatcha cannin' today?
